A terrifying statistic

So you know how you can read something and it just ignites this “holy crap” response? An article I just read states:

the United Nations estimates that 1 billion women will be raped and sexually brutalized this year

Can that even be accurate? 1 billion women? Thats between 1/4 and 1/3 of the female population of the world. That is absolutely insane. I need to do something.
